Bequests

One of the easiest ways to make a gift to Susan G. Komen for the Cure is by leaving Komen a bequest in your Will. There are several ways you can do this. You can (1) give a specific amount of money to Komen; (2) give a specific item of property to Komen; or (3) give a specified percentage of the residue of your estate to Komen (the residue of your estate is that which is left over after all specific gifts have been made, whether charitable or non-charitable). Since we cannot predict future medical advances or the need of our community, we recommend that your bequest be for unrestricted purposes.

The following simple language can be used to make your gift:
"I give and devise to the Inland Empire Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, or its successor, the sum of _________ Dollars ($_________) to be used for such charitable purposes as the governing body of the XYZ Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure deems appropriate; provided, however, that at the time of such gift, the Inland Empire Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure or its successor, must be a charity as described in Sections 170(c) and 2055(a) of the Internal Revenue Code."
OR
"I give and devise ________ percent (________%) of my residuary estate to the Inland Empire Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, or its successor, to be used for such charitable purposes as the governing body of the Inland Empire Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure deems appropriate; provided, however, that at the time of such gift, the Inland Empire Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, or its successor, must be a charity as described in Sections 170(c) and 2055(a) of the Internal Revenue Code."
A bequest may be included in the body of a will or as an amendment (codicil). Gifts made through a bequest typically provide an estate tax deduction. Please consult your attorney and/or financial advisor for specific information.
